Unfortunately no. Membership subscriptions must be up-to-date in order to be eligible.
My membership category is not listed as a licensed builder or trade contractor, but I do have a licence, can I still nominate?
If you are looking to nominate for the MBEC or Divisional Representative positions, unfortunately no. To be eligible for these positions, your membership subscription must be as a licensed builder or trade contractor. You can speak with our Membership team to have this adjusted in order to nominate.
I am already a committee member, will I remain on the committee?
Not necessarily. As part of the Master Builders Constitution, all office bearing positions and committee positions must be elected every three years. Even as a current committee member, you’ll need to nominate for a position for the 2019-2022 period.
How much time do I need to commit?
You can give as much time and effort as required and will depend on the position you hold – however, as a minimum, you will need to commit to attending a number of meetings each year and getting involved in specific policy discussions as required.
